Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

Onyx Classics presents the début recording of a rare, recently restored 1725 Stradivarius cello that resides in a museum in Lisbon. Pavel Gomziakov, a protégé of Maria João Pires, performs Haydn's Cello Concertos in C & D as well as the wonderful slow movement from the composer's Symphony No.13, which has a large solo cello role. Also included is Gomziakov's own arrangement of the Adagio from the C major violin concerto. The sound that this wonderful instrument produces is rich, mellow, powerful and a unique voice and a superb example of Stradivarius's late, golden period.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2016
This fabulous instrument hasn't been played regularly for a century, so his achievement in coaxing it to life is impressive indeed. Like old wine, it has depth, complexity, unpredictability, range and radiance, displaying both the 'covered' quality of a truly great instruments and a penetrating power of projection ... Gomziakov... exudes easy sophistication and grace.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
These are immensely tender, intimate, readings from Gomziakov.
